Description

The Cavallo Tucker Full Pad is specially coordinated to Tucker Saddle styles: Endurance Trail (full skirt), High Plains (full skirt), Cheyenne Frontier (full skirt), Cimarron Trail, and Buffalo (full skirt).

This saddle pad uses the same memory foam technology you already know and love to increase symmetry in your saddle fit, absorb shock and provide a more pleasant riding experience for both horse and rider.

Length: 32″ (81cm)

Width: 28″(71cm) x 16″(41cm) tapering to 12″(31cm)

Cavallo Total Comfort System Saddle Pads are designed to promote even distribution of weight to the weight-bearing longissimus dorsi muscles along either side of the horse’s backbone; to keep weight off the horse’s spine; and to allow room for the horse’s scapula to move properly within the narrow confines of the saddle.

Our Tri-Density Solution, plus the performance enhancement (PE)panel, combined with fine finishing details including genuine leather butt joints, nylon bindings and aeration perforations, provides the Ultimate in Saddle Pads, benefiting both horse and rider!

Shock absorbent: it’s not shocking!

  • Saves the backs of both horse and rider
  • Promotes blood circulation (the slow release memory of the open cell foam creates a gentle massaging action on the horse’s muscle structure)

Improves saddle fit: Fit for Excellence!

  • Contracts at pressure points, fills gaps
  • Enhances the saddle gullet (protecting the spine)
  • Cutback allows wither relief
  • More comfort for a saddle which fits perfectly
  • Allows one saddle to be used on multiple horses
  • Compensates for the changing horses back (different levels of conditioning, natural development over the season and development over the horse’s lifetime)


Thin: Thin is important!

  • 4 different material densities creates a thinner pad with greater shock absorption than a pad twice as thick
    allows more room for free movement of the scapula (shoulder blade)


Reversible: Effective & Stylish

  • New Zealand wool on one side, closed cell shock absorbing foam on the other
  • Use either side against the horse; it’s your personal preference!

Cavallo Technology

 

Patented Nitrex Closed-Cell Foam:Non-PVC foam that has low resilience and low penetration value, resulting in excellent shock absorption, insulation, cushioning and rebound (G-value energy return). Far superior to traditional foams.

  • soft and lightweight
  • water-absorption-free

Open-Cell Memory Foam to enhance saddle fit:

  • releases as the rider shifts weight to vary pressure and gently massage the muscles, promoting healthy circulation
  • evenly distributes rider and saddle weight on the muscles
  • contracts where the saddle is tight and remains full where the saddle has less contact.

New Zealand Merino Wool:100% Merino Wool carded and consolidated into a dense material. The resulting cloth is then heat-bonded to enhance dimensional stability, durability and abrasion resistance.
high directional stability to maintain shape

  • Resilient
  • Durable
  • wicks away moisture
  • breathable and insulating

Testimonials

I've been wanting to get my mare barefoot for the longest time, but missed the opportunity every winter. My mare has sensitive front feet and every time we took the shoes off, she went lame (and I didn't have time for her to be sore and harden up), hooves kept on chipping right away and from pure agony we always ended up putting the shoes back on.

I listened to Carole's (Herder) talk at the show and she kept saying how comfortable horses feel when you put the Simple boots on. How they immediately start licking and chewing. I was totally ready to believe her, but still, in the back of my mind there was a little voice saying "yeah right, I'll believe it when I see it". Well, did I see it last night!

My farriers took the shoes off yesterday, and because she has had front shoes on for two years in a row. Her frog is lower than her hoof wall, meaning she does land on her frog first and that is quite uncomfortable for her. I walked around on her in my sandring last night and she tip toed on her newly bare feet. Trotting was definitely sore. Then we went into the deeper sand/grass field and she was allright enough to work a bit. When I came home I washed her feet, put them in a plastic bag and tried a Simple boot on. I had measured from the buttress line to the toe and that indicated 5 inches. So she would need a size 3. She "clicked" right into a size 3, it fit nice and snug (a very little bit of play, but not able to rotate the boot whatsoever) and the second she put that foot on the ground, she lowered her head and started licking her lips and chewing. I was quite flabbergasted. I could almost hear her go "ooohhh, that feels soooooo gooooood". I'm confident this time our barefoot adventure will have a happy ending. My farriers have agreed to come back every 4 weeks for the next little while to keep her feet from chipping too badly, and combined with the boots I am certain that I can get to a happy, healthy horse!

  Dear Carole, I imagine that my comments may come off like some kind of shameless endorsement but I have to thank you for your Cavallo Simple Boot design. We're located in the high desert "Great Basin" region of Nevada. A typical ride in these parts may involve riding over prehistoric lake bed sand to footing that resembles cobblestone streets to picking our way through lava rock. All of our horses are barefoot. Barefoot horses seem to have healthier feet and they get better traction on tricky terrain. However a few of the horses need additional protection when traveling the rougher routes. [caption id="attachment_4905" align="aligncenter" width="452"]Volunteer Sarah T. on Tucker, near Misfits Flat, NV. Volunteer Sarah T. on Tucker, near Misfits Flat, NV.[/caption] We've accumulated various makes and models of equine boots over the years but the Simple Boot is what we now reach for. We can put them on quickly and reliably without having to have a toolbox handy. The Velcro design is strong but also allows easy adjustment so that the boots will fit properly. They provide hoof wall protection without producing sores along the coronet or heel bulbs. Plus these boots are really good at resisting sand intrusion when going through the really fluffy stuff and surprisingly the Velcro does not collect foxtails, burrs and the like. If we do trek across our own version of the Sahara Desert, it only takes a few seconds to remove a Simple Boot to check for sand (usually not a problem) and clean out the boot if a little sand did sneak in. To be honest, the Simple Boot actually changed my attitude about equestrian boots. Not that I didn't recognize their value, but I dreaded struggling with getting boots fitted properly before the ride, getting my fingers pinched in the mechanisms, cutting a finger on a frayed wire, or having to pull out a set of pliers to get the latches set to a proper tension... not to mention dealing with sand-caused sores on the horses after riding through really deep stuff. I obviously recommend equine boots for horses that need hoof protection, but I would advise anyone like me who has struggled with the older boot designs to look into the newer designs and technologies before giving up on the concept. Designs such as I found with Simple Boots can be game changers. If you decide to use my comments as a testimonial, I'd like to clarify that while I've always advocated for proper hoof care, this note about Simple Boots was completely unsolicited. I simply like equestrians to be aware of their options in order to make their experiences safer and more enjoyable for them and their mounts. Plus we equestrians tend to be traditional and we sometimes aren't aware of useful improvements in available horse equipment. So props to Cavallo for coming up with the Simple Boot. We've now used them long enough to be confident in their functionality and durability. And please continue to develop newer and better ways to protect our equine partners. Equestrian "engineering" is a never-ending evolutionary process.
